Newsflash to the Biden-Harris administration — you’re not helping.
Before they were elected, co-Presidents Joe-Mala Biden-Harris were very clear on their messaging regarding the virus from Wuhan. It was basically, “EVERYONE! BE AFRAID ALL THE TIME! WEAR YOUR MASK 24/7 OR YOU’RE ALL GOING TO DIE! Also… Orange Man Bad! Vote Biden-Harris!”
It worked for them thanks to the corporate media and their Big Tech buddies.
But now we’re over 100 days into the Biden-Harris administration and despite millions of vaccines, states opening up, and cases declining in many areas of the country, the message hasn’t changed much.
The President seems to rely on his mask the same way that Linus from Peanuts needs his security blanket.
He freaked out when he was at an event in Georgia and couldn’t find his mask despite being outdoors and having been fully vaccinated several months ago.
It’s these kinds of weird behaviors by the co-Presidents that are making people wonder what the point is in getting vaccinated.
He’s now saying that it’s a “patriotic duty” to keep wearing a mask after being vaccinated.
The confusing new CDC guidance doesn’t help much, either.
The vaccines are highly effective at preventing illness…which is the point of a vaccine, is it not?
And yet, the President and Vice President continue to behave as though they have not been given a highly efficacious vaccine — they still wear a mask when they’re in public, even when they’re outdoors, and when they actually face the press in a sit-down interview, the interviewer is practically in another time zone.
They keep doing this kind of thing, though.
In the past few days, (co)President Biden and First Lady Jill as well as (co)President Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff were spreading doubt about the efficacy of the vaccines by their masked-outdoors behavior.
Yesterday, Harris and Emhoff were wearing masks outdoors and then kissed through their masks on the tarmac before Harris boarded a plane to literally anywhere but the Southern border.
Dirty masks touching each other aside, I guess you can’t really blame the guy… after all, we all know where that mouth has been.
Fortunately, we were spared the disturbing image of the Bidens kissing each other with masks on, but they did have their own mask debacle.
On the weekend, the Bidens went to visit the home of former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn, who are both in their nineties have been fully vaccinated.
You may recall seeing the strange photo of the Bidens and the Carters on social media or on the news. The wide-angle lens in a small space makes the Bidens appear huge and the Carters tiny.
While that got a whole lot of attention for the bizarre perspective, others noted that no one was masked-up indoors. That’s quite a departure for Joe who seems rather comfortable behind a dirty piece of cloth or two.
It’s important to note here that this is totally acceptable according to CDC guidelines — this is a small group of people all of whom have been fully vaccinated.
The weird part was when the Bidens were leaving the Carters’ home on the weekend, they don their masks outside, which Joe Biden should know is not recommended by the CDC because he’s the one that made the announcement.
I’m old enough to remember when the corporate media was apoplectic when a certain orange-hued septuagenarian who is a bit on the heavy side and had a predilection for fast food and Diet Coke, returned to the White House just days after he was checked into Walter Reed after testing positive for COVID telling people to not let COVID “take over their lives.”
But Biden and Harris wearing masks outside when the CDC says that it isn’t necessary? Oh, that’s different. They mean well, and they’re just taking extra precautions because they care.
They’re also sending the message that the vaccines aren’t as effective as advertised.
Whether it’s based in “science” or not, there’s concern out there over a very quickly developed vaccine using a brand-spanking new technology that is billed as astoundingly effective and the ticket to returning to normal life, and politicians are trying to coerce people into taking it with things like vaccine passports. Also, you have the same people that were cautious of the vaccine before they were elected because it was developed during the Bad Orange Man administration, but now they are suddenly pro-vaccine yet continue to wear masks and distance themselves outdoors after being vaccinated for months.
If you can’t understand how there is some confusion among people who value individual liberty, I don’t know what to tell you.
Look, y’all are gonna do what you’re gonna do. Just make sure that you do it after you’ve done your research, assessed your risk, and consulted a doctor whose advice you trust.
But the clowns in the White House are seriously undermining their message that vaccines are safe and effective.
